Faces from a Remote Village in Kashmir


This photo, uploaded to Flickr in March, conveys a wonderful variation of personality among children in a remote village of Kashmir. The photographer writes:

These kids raced after our vehicle as we drove through their village in Kashmir, shouting with excitement. They exploded with laughter after being photographed.

These are the kind of people we should be thinking about when we hear about aid workers not yet having reached remote villages by now, twelve days after the earthquake.

Did that building behind them survive? Did they? Are they still waiting for help?

PS to Bloggers: OK. I would also like to see Karl Rove rot in jail. But aren't there more important things to blog about just now?
